4 bedroom villa with private pool and garden. Located in a traditional quiet village with mountain views, while only 15 kms away of the capital


Located in the traditional village of Pendamodi in the Heraklion area, the two-storey Christina Villa 1 of the Christina Villas complex offers the unique combination of peace along with modern comforts and easy access to the City life. At a distance of just 15kms from Heraklion, the capital of Crete, also the north beaches and the E4 walking path, Pendamodi is an ideal location for excursions to every corner of the island, even though few of the guests usually decide to leave the hospitality and warmth of Christina and of the village. Christina Villa has an architecture inspired from the local traditional aesthetics. The private pool adds to the characteristics of the discreet luxury and decorates the nights of the veranda. Large open plan lounge with integrated dining area, a fireplace and full equipment, complete the comfort and relaxation that the guests enjoy when they do not choose to gaze and wonder at the mountain view, tapestry of olive groves and vineyards.

Pendamodi village
Pendamodi is one of the oldest villages of Crete and it is not without importance, that Stefanos Sahlikis wrote his poems there beginning this way in the middle of the 14th century, the Renaissance of Cretan and Greek literature.Today there are a few inhabitants who are well known for their hospitality and sociality. There are two traditional "kafenions" one of which also serves traditional "mezes" and a horse-riding club and taverna for those who want to taste the local cuisine or test their riding skills. The village layout, cobbled roads and stone-built houses maintain the design, architecture and structure of the old days. The main village and the surrounding landscapes are ideal for nature lovers and walkers.
The possibility to be in the full of life and hype City of Heraklion in a few minutes makes Pendamodi a unique destination for both foreign and local guests.

Very nice Villa. Zakoros tours who manage the villa were very accommodating, we checked in late and checked out late and they had no problems with that. The villa was cleaned once during our 7day stay. They taverna up the street had excellent food. Zakoros can also help you with any questions and activities you want to do in the area.

Location, Location,Location. Pendamodi is a perfect setting to explore Crete. We found some fantastic local restaurants within a short drive and everything we needed was available in the Village....even a local hostelry that served excellent local food. Unusually for rural Villas this one is serviced regularly and we found George and Elizabeth a fantastic resource who ensured our stay was everything we hoped it would be. A personal thanks to you both for your attentiveness. I have no hesitation in recommending this Villa for a relaxing break in the heart of a beautiful island. From initial enquiry right through to arrival at the airport and support in finding the Villa I found the service from Zakros Tours and the team first class. Thanks again.

“Nous avons passé un agréable séjour, la maison est conforme à la description et aux photos. Notre hôte est venu nous chercher à l'aéroport pour nous accompagner à la villa, ce qui est fort agréable. Possibilité de location de voiture via l'hôte. La villa est située dans un joli petit village, nous conseillons le kafeneios qui est à 5 minutes à pieds, il n'y a pas de carte mais un assortiment de mezze vraiment délicieux!”
